Trent Alexander-Arnold is facing a race in time to recover for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night after sustaining a minor injury in the weekend win over Burnley.

The right-back has been included in the 21-man Reds squad to Germany after training with the first team on Tuesday morning.

However, it seems the England international was subbed in the game against the Clarets as a precautionary measure considering Klopp’s recent comments.

Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com on Monday, Jürgen Klopp said of Alexander-Arnold’s fitness: “It looks good. He had a bit of a problem obviously but it should not be a major concern.

“We cannot judge the situation now, we have to wait this full day, tomorrow possibly the full day – we have two days and then we have a little, little session on Wednesday morning.

“If we know then, it’s good and then we’ll choose the team and play.”

Klopp also confirmed Liverpool will have to monitor the conditions of Dejan Lovren and James Milner – who made the journey to Munich on Tuesday – ahead of the match.

But former Leipzig man Naby Keita is set to miss the tie due to injury and didn’t travel with the squad to Munich.
